Bloomingdale car accident attorney

Car accidents are dangerous for drivers and passengers. Both adults and children alike can suffer serious injuries in a collision. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of death among children in the United States. Even children who do not die in car accidents can sustain significant injuries. The CDC reports that nearly 116,000 children suffered injuries from motor vehicle accidents in 2017. There is no way that you can know when an automobile crash is going to happen, but in the event your child is injured in a crash, contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer right away is key to seeking compensation for any damages.

The Importance of Car Seat Safety

The best way to protect your child when riding in a vehicle is to make sure he or she is restrained in an appropriate car seat. Illinois has laws that require children to be restrained in a certain way depending on their age, weight, and height. Children who are under the age of 2 years old should be secured in a rear-facing car seat until they are at least 40 pounds or 40 inches tall. After they outgrow a rear-facing car seat, they can transition to a forward-facing seat that has an internal harness system. Children should never be placed in the front seat, especially if they are in a rear-facing car seat.

Naperville car accident attorney T-bone collision

Car accidents can range in severity from a simple fender-bender in which nobody is hurt to more severe crashes that total the vehicle and kill the occupants. Many factors affect the severity of a motor vehicle collision, including the cause of the accident, the speed at which the vehicles were traveling, and even whether or not the occupants were wearing seat belts at the time of impact. While any auto accident has the capacity to be severe in both property damage and injuries to those involved, T-bone car accidents can be especially serious.

What Is a T-Bone Collision?

T-bone accidents are named so because the two vehicles involved in resemble the letter T when colliding. T-bone accidents are also referred to as side-impact collisions, because one vehicle will strike the other in the side. All car accidents can result in injuries, but side-impact crashes can result in especially severe injuries or even death. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), side-impact crashes were responsible for 23 percent of accident fatalities in 2018.

Getting into a car accident can be stressful for many reasons. In some situations, the crash may have been so severe that you sustained serious injuries that require medical care. Medical treatment is not free -- it comes at a cost. Who is responsible for taking care of these expensive bills after a vehicle collision? If you can prove that the other driver was responsible for causing the accident, he or she might be held liable for covering the costs of your medical care, the damage to your vehicle, and any other physical or financial harm you have experienced. However, even if the other driver is ultimately liable for your medical treatment and auto repairs, that does not mean the process of claiming this compensation will be simple. That is why it is essential to seek professional legal counsel to protect your rights for seeking damages. 

Seeking Medical Care After Your Accident

Receiving compensation after your auto accident is not a speedy process. A case can take months to settle, which is why you should not wait to get medical care for your injuries. In some cases, waiting to treat your injuries could severely damage your health and cause more issues down the road. You may have to file a claim under your own medical insurance or auto insurance policies and make any applicable copays in the meantime.

Naperville auto accident compensation attorney

Driving or riding in a car is something that almost all Americans do every single day. With something that is such a common occurrence, we often forget how dangerous motor vehicles can be if they are not driven properly or if someone is not paying full attention to the task at hand. Auto accidents often result in damage to vehicles, but they can also easily cause injury to occupants involved in the collision. Getting into a car accident can be extremely unnerving for most people. Receiving compensation for your injuries or other damages is not impossible, but you need sufficient evidence to prove your case in order to prevail.

Take Photos at the Scene of the Crash

Photographs are one of the most valuable forms of evidence. These serve as visual evidence that can allow you to prove your point when pursuing compensation for a car accident. At the scene of the accident, try to document as many things as you can such as:

Naperville winter car accident injury attorney

The harsh weather conditions that can be associated with a Midwest winter may leave motorists wishing they did not have to travel. While it is true that every season produces different driving hazards, winter may be considered the most dangerous. Freezing rain, ice, sleet, and snow can all cause a driver to lose control of his or her vehicle, leading to a potentially serious injury. Regardless of the weather conditions, a driver is still responsible for his or her actions behind the wheel. To keep yourself, your family, and other motorists safe on the road, here are a few tips that can reduce the likelihood of a car accident

Prepare Your Vehicle

Maintaining proper safety equipment in your vehicle can make winter driving more manageable. To do so, you should check your tires, battery, headlights, and windshield wipers to ensure they are in proper working order. Traction issues resulting from worn or “bald” tires could lead to a head-on collision or a rear-end accident. Furthermore, a simple headlight outage or a windshield wiper malfunction could significantly decrease a driver’s visibility. Frequently checking the status of your car and its fluids could save your life.
